How I Wear LuLaRoe {My Sunday Best #7}

I know it is Tuesday and not Sunday, but it was my goal to have this written and published on Sunday, but today is the first day that I had a few minutes plus enough sleep and coffee to finish all of my thoughts in a way that (I hope) makes sense.

Since the birth of Mary Rose, all of my Sunday outfits have included at least one piece of LuLaRoe. 

I first became aware of LuLaRoe about a year ago. Originally, I was not interested in the clothing. It all seemed to be made of stretchy cotton and included items that I thought would not be flattering on my middle aged chubby body. In March, a friend hosted a Pop-up in her home and invited me to stop by her place to touch and try on different styles. Being newly pregnant, I decided to try on a Nicole dress. I loved it. I bought it, and it was my first and only piece of LuLaRoe for months. As I got closer to my due date, I worried about having nice, comfortable clothes to wear postpartum, and my thoughts turned to LuLaRoe once more. Currently, I own many pairs of leggings, three Maxi skirts, one Azure skirt, two Perfect Tees, one Carly, and two Nicole dresses. I love all of them!

I am 5'4", overweight, apple shaped, and I am exclusively nursing Mary Rose. Deciding which pieces would work best for me in my current state of life took a little time, but I have finally figured out what works for me and what size I need in each style. Thankfully, I have been able to attend a couple of pop-ups to try things on before buying. Plus, I have a wonderful friend who allowed me to try on several pieces from her wardrobe. 

Below is a picture of the outfits I wore the mass the last two Sundays.

I wear a Maxi as a dress in size Large. With a cardigan over it, I think it looks cute, feels comfortable, and is nursing friendly. I wear a Carly in a size Small. It is nursing friendly as long as I wear leggings under it, like it is a large top instead of a dress with a slip underneath of it. 

Now, let's discuss wearing LuLaRoe every day for stylish comfort.

I wear LuLaRoe Leggings in One Size. I tried the Tall and Curvy, at first, but they were too baggy and bunched in my legs. I wear them with long tunics and cardigans that cover everything that needs to be covered. Originally, I didn't think that leggings were appropriate for someone of my age and situation, but honestly, I love wearing LuLaRoe leggings with the right top. The outfit is comfy enough to wear around my house but decent enough to answer the door in and to make a quick run to the grocery store. Don't worry friends; leggings can be modest!

I also wear leggings under nursing-friendly dresses that were part of my wardrobe already. It is fun to combine a bold pattern legging with a solid dress and tall boot for a pop of color! LuLaRoe sells several tops, but the only one that I like is the Perfect Tee. I can wear it in size Small or Medium. I think the Perfect Tee goes well with a cardigan and jeans.  

My Nicole dresses are not currently in my wardrobe rotation because I can not nurse in them.

You probably already know how to purchase LuLaRoe, but in case you don't I will tell you! I think it is best to find a consultant that is local (find here), but if you can't find someone local Facebook is full of LuLaRoe groups. All you need to do is request to join and start asking questions. A few questions that are helpful to ask are about tax and shipping cost, return policy, and about the fabric of the specific pieces that interest you. There are several different fabric types that LuLaRoe uses, and some are softer and stretchier than others. 

One more thing, LuLaRoe is a tad bit more expensive than I like to spend on my clothes, but some consultants do offer coupon codes from time to time, some offer a buy ten items get one item free special, and many consultants host giveaways. Half of the items I have purchased were discounted when I bought them.
